House Boats on Lake Shasta
We're researching the Shasta Lake offering for house boats for our family next summer. Do any of you have experience in renting a house boat there and, if so, do you have recommendations for an outfit that we should or should not consider. We would appreciate any and all input. Thank You.

Performing Arts Reviews
Yesterday I met a person (Lee Greene) who has a very interesting and useful website called Performing Arts Reviews. He has been an arts critic for the Mail Tribune. His website offers:
(1) An updated calendar about what’s playing on a specific day
(2) He also presents an extensive set of reviews of theatrical plays and musicals, of live music concerts and recitals spanning a wide range of genres from classical to jazz to pop to country and more, of films shown at festivals and special events, and of various other performing arts events, presented in the numerous performing arts venues in Southern Oregon.
The website can be accessed at:

I rented a house boat 2 years ago from Antlers Resort. It was very nice ..had a hot tub and was fully equiped with everything we needed except a wine opener. It said it would sleep 15 which was a stretch of the imagination, but it had 2 staterooms, extra bunks, hideabed etc. We went in July . I would suggest an early date as the lake can get very low late in the season, which means high side banks. Feel free to call me with questions.

Travel -- Galapagos Mike and I are planning a trip during the next year to the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu. Our baseline trip for comparison purposes is one by Road Scholar (formerly Elderhostel). We have traveled with Elderhostel before; also with National Geographic.
If you have suggestions of other companies that we should research, we would appreciate hearing from you.

Grand Circle, Collette
Robin and I have traveled with Grand Circle 4 times and really like their tours. We also have gone with Collette twice and had great experiences there, too. We have felt that both Grand Circle and Collette are interesting, education, and good value. We were gifted a trip on Tauck and that was nice but very laid back and not as educational as we like. Many years ago we went with Grand European when they were still good; then they became enveloped by Far and Wide and those tours were not as good; one was a disaster. We have not traveled with them since them separated themselves again and are just Grand European.

Darlene and I traveled with Vantage several times and were very pleased with them. They stay in some better venues and their guides are great!

Patricia Aitkens,

I have been using Patricia Aitkens, AAA located on Barnett Rd. , 541/618-4076. She is local and one does not need to be a member of AAA to use her service. I have found her to be very knowledgeable and quite helpful. She also saved me a lot of money on my current reservations to Europe.

I worked with Ranee Houk this week at AAA. I am so impressed with her friendly, professional, effective manner. I would heartily recommend her.I would also advise travelers to NOT do business with an online service called Ranee at AAA did for me in an hour what could not do in a week.
